My years at SMU… as told by Miss J

Almost 3 years at SMU have flown by and the transformation is laughable. Which is why I will tell the story of my years at SMU as told by the infamous American reality TV personality a.k.a. the face of America’s Next Top Model – Miss J. Thank you my dear friend, Benny Maldonado, for the inspiration.

I still remember the shock and awe of receiving my acceptance letter from SMU.

I was so excited for the first day of school.

But on the first day of school, I started to realize how different this place was from where I used to live.

I felt a little out of place, so I got a little scared and became really shy. 

I started to hate school.

My grades sucked.

And I hated school even more.

Even though I hated it, I knew I just had to suck it up and grow up.

So I prayed to sweet baby Jesus to please do something, anything.

And I realized, I’m just gonna keep doin’ me.

After a while, I started to meet people (this isn’t Miss J, but whatever).

Studied harder, grades got better.

I started joining more organizations.

Had some crazy nights.

Really crazy nights.

I was getting more and more confident.

And then, I found a group of people who were just as strange as me and loved each other for it.

I started liking school again.

Now, I love my school, and I’m so thankful.

So what did I learn during my time year at SMU? When in doubt – just pray and be yourself.

But, I still can’t wait to graduate and get out of here.
